Regain control of the Internet
The Internet like the world is at a crossroads. We have the choice between letting the “gods of Silicon Valley” and Asia define what the future of the web will be and imposing their vision of the world and of their “philanthropy”, or regaining control of the Internet, of its contents and our data.
In 2015, GAFAS and governments were holding 5 digital data points per person in the US. It has probably been enough to change a major election. In less than 10 years from now, everyone on Earth will be “databased” with 70 000 personal data points!
Besides the obvious dangers of this evolution, this overidentification, directly linked to the advertising business model, has generated “filter bubbles” and other sneaky data distortions which, at the opposite of the initial goal of social medias of bringing people together, now isolate them in their own universes. And we begin now to see how strongly it polarizes and divides the society and the "real world."
Moreover, this business model which gives the illusion of a free service, is actually selling your data, this digital gold, which is today the property of “GAFAish” companies. And they make a lot of money of it.
Republike intends to reverse things by giving you back what should never have left your hands: the power over your personal data and over what you see and an unlimited field of world-class content and nice discussions opening you new horizons. By putting the control of the algorithms and the quality of content in the hands of users at the heart of the design of Republike, our ambition is to create a collective opportunity to take our digital lives back in hands and to offer the possibility to think outside of the matrix.
Regarding the business model, let's be transparent: we fiercely fight and even condemn the usual business driver used by ALL digital platforms which is to try to keep the user still longer and longer on the platform and therefore maintain and encourage addictions and depression. On the contrary our vision is to shape a platform for & by humans and not humans for & by platforms. If people contribute and stay on the platform we want the cause to be that they feel better people by using it, but certainly not because they CRAVE for it. Consequently, we need a community conscious of these major issues and committed with us to build something really new and good for the future.
We want Republike to be a new kind of digital space, free of algo, free of influence other than its own citizens’s one, free of financial pressure and thus self-supportive since it is the only way to escape the clutches of starving financial investors and also to not be doomed to the silicon valley’s giants' business model which is to sell its users (we'll NEVER do that).
Ultimately, we want to follow this logic to the end and therefore that the community and the citizens access capital according to their contribution in order to build the 1st social platform fully owned under every aspects by its users.
